Error Running HeroMiners Script

Hi, I am running the herominers script as shown on the website. The code is below. I am also getting this error. I’m sure it’s something obvious but cannot resolve. Any help appreciated.
Error = Invalid address used for login [randomwow]

SRBMiner-MULTI.exe --algorithm randomwow --pool wownero.herominers.com:10661 --wallet YOUR_WOWNERO_WALLET_ADDRESS --password YOUR_WORKER_NAME

Just checking but did you replace YOUR_WOWNERO_WALLET_ADDRESS with your Wownero wallet address? It should begin with the characters Wo4.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I am using the feather wallet and the address starts with 2 numbers and is a random string.

Sounds like you’ve copied something else by mistake. Addresses begin with Wo (normal addresses) or So (subaddresses).

OK I tried a different wallet and got an address starting with Wo.

It’s now working!

Thanks for your support.

QQ…first time mining (noob) is it actually worth mining this coin with CPU?

Yes, CPU is the way to go for Wownero! :slight_smile:

What CPU have you got, and how many hashes per second (H/s) are you getting? It might be worth going with XMRig over SRBMiner (don’t worry, it’s just as easy to configure)

I’ve got a Ryzen 9 3900x

Current Hash Rate: 9.08 kH/sec

Is this any good?

I joined a pool for mining also…assumed this was the best way to go?

You should be able to get nearly double that. I get 16.5 kH/s with very minimal tweaking. Try XMRig, run it as administrator, reboot, and then run it as administrator again so that it can perform some tweaks (huge pages, msr to disable prefetcher).


A pool gives you more consistent and predictable earnings, but in the end it doesn’t really matter. That is, if you had two identical computers, one mining on a pool and one mining solo, they should earn the same amount of WOW after a long enough period of time.

OK great I’ll give XMRig a go. Thanks for your help, much appreciated and Happy New Year!

Downloaded and AV is saying infected with Win64:CoinminerX-gen [Trj]

Looked it up and looks a legit Trojan

i.e. not a false positive

Happy new year to you, and good luck mining!


This is because malware authors have started to bundle XMRig with their malware so that they can mine on their victim’s computers. You will need to add it to your AV’s exclusion list.

If you want to be sure, double check the hashes and signatures of the files you’ve downloaded, but I’m unsure how to do this on Windows. You could also compile XMRig yourself, that way you can be certain (also you can edit src/donate.h to get rid of the 1% donation :wink:).
